Details to Love: Lace and Eyelet

Growing up I was somewhat of a tomboy. I say somewhat, because while you'd frequently find me scaling pine trees or playing tackle football with the boys, I loved to dress up. And dress up I did, often choosing evening gowns or dress designs that channeled the South or Victorian eras.

What I Love: Eyelet and Lace

Often if my outfit doesn't have lace embellishment, you can bet that my petticoats do. In the collage above, the top row (left to right) shows lace details from my Toni Lynn cocktail dress that I wore to cubes' holiday party and my Hannah Troy evening gown that I was originally going to wear (pre-pregnancy news). The bottom row (left to right) reveals the detailing on a few of my petticoats, "simple" cotton petticoats from the 1950s and 1960s as well as an Anne Fogarty petticoat from the 1950s.

Are you a fan of lace and eyelet?

Ciao Bella!
